Preview: Ride at the O2 Academy, Liverpool

Wed 25 October, 2017

Stephen Lewin goes in search of some interesting shoes to stare at in preparation of Ride’s arrival in Liverpool with new material in tow to boot. 

For the benefit of the uninitiated Ride could be seen as the missing link between the navel-glaring ruminations of Slowdive or The House Of Love and the more danceable sound of The Stone Roses.

Since their 1990 debut for indie stronghold Creation, they have been the touchstone for guitar bands and electronic acts alike. The Oxonians’ influence can be heard on all manner of artists’ work; from Oasis through to M83 and DIIV.

This autumn the crown princes of shoegaze return to the live circuit in support of their first album of new material in 21 years.

Weather Diaries finds a rebooted Ride unafraid to return to the dream pop of of their earlier work with modern tweaks courtesy of Erol Alkan.

The tour takes in Liverpool’s O2 Academy on the 12th of November and boasts already much loved East London janglers Ulrika Spacek in support.
